York JCC

Yom HaShoah Holocaust Exhibit

The York Jewish Community Center will host its Yom HaShoah Holocaust Exhibit from 8:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. This exhibit is free and open to the public.

The event takes place on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), and allows participants to come face to face with the atrocities experienced by the Jewish people and others during the Holocaust.

The exhibit will feature screenings of "What I Remember," a 30-minute documentary produced by the York JCC including interviews with two Holocaust survivors with local ties to York, Nessy Marks and Bluma Shapiro, who share their personal stories and experiences as they each navigated survival. During their lifetime they spoke with thousands of York County students and adults, and through this event, their stories remain alive. The screenings will take place at 9 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
